“No Gun” signs now pose liability to property owners in TN

Comment by Dave Nalley/Facebook:
So our friends over in Tennessee accomplished quite a feat recently that goes into effect in just a few days.

The change is that property owners who post ‘no guns’ signs and prohibit lawful concealed carry on their premises are now liable for the safety of any permit holder on their property in the event of injury or death that might have been avoided if left armed.

This is not pending legislation – this has already been signed into law.
Present law authorizes persons in control of property to post […]

Mick Mulvaney on the Tax Reform Plan

From his Facebook page:

I know that what happened in the United Kingdom last night is getting all of the news, and that is probably to be expected. And while the British decision to leave the EU certainly is a historic event, my guess it that, aside from some short-term instability in the markets, the impact on you, me and our families will be fairly limited.

But there was actually something happening in Washington today that could have huge implications – in a good way – for American families. And that is because the House Republicans (finally!) introduced our massive tax reform […]

Mick Mulvaney on the Dem House sit in

From Mick’s Facebook page:

Well, it’s almost midnight and I am sitting up waiting to vote again, so I thought I would do a quick post about the ongoing so-called “sit-in” in the House.

First, a little background: if you had the chance to catch me on WBT radio earlier this week, you heard me say how much I respected – disagreed with, but respected – the actions that Senator Chris Murphy took in his filibuster over gun legislation. He was availing himself of the tools granted to a Senator, and he was using it for the exact right reason: to draw […]

Legislature Passes ‘Independent Investigation’ Bill (HA!)

For anyone (and that includes legislators) simple minded enough to think that the “Ethics Bill” did anything about ethics violations … The SCPC spells it out…

 

“But although the Ethics Commission would investigate lawmakers, final decisions on guilt and punishment would remain with the legislative ethics committees.

 

But politicians should be subject to the same criminal laws everybody else lives under: embezzlement should be embezzlement and not downgraded to “converting campaign funds to private uses” simply because the offender is a politician. Rather than rearranging the Ethics Commission, then, lawmakers should simply (a) abolish the House and Senate ethics committees – thus […]

County Council meeting Monday!

C’mon you know you want to!  Now that election cycle is done, let’s get back to some practical work.  One of those things is regular attendance at County Council meetings, so each of us can see and hear and know for our own selves what is happening in our county, how our monies are being spent, what’s going well, what we can work on.

Monday the 20th is the next Spartanburg County Council meeting, the committee meetings begin at 4 PM (that’s when the presentations and discussions take place) the general meeting begins at 5:30 PM (when the votes are taken). […]

2 more weeks. Lee Bright still has an election date.

We are not done. take a day. maybe a half day. Then contact Lee Bright and ask what you can do for his runoff election.

2 weeks. Is there a day in the next 2 weeks you can spend 2 hours knocking on doors? Making calls?

What wins elections is communicating directly with voters. You may be tired from the past few months, but we ALL know the feeling of “could I have done more?” that comes after some election cycles.

Don’t feel that.
